Headwinds and Light Rain.  1095 YPM

 

222 Miles B

11th

Note:  This 222 Mile was a very bad race and partly to blame for our poor returns, however I knew something was not right with my birds from the previous race and they did not look good all week prior to this race.  After they did so poorly I knew for sure something was wrong and took a couple birds to the vet on Monday after the race and it turns out they had a Candida Yeast infection which is a performance killer and the reason behind the poor results.

1 Hour 36 Minutes Out of 1st

"Smash" Strong Headwinds/Light Rain 

241 Miles A

14th

Note:  Due to the birds being sick from the previous week I had to treat all week (up until noon on shipping day) with Copper Sulfate which is very hard on the bird's systems.  As a result I only sent 5 birds to this race.

40 Minutes Out of 1st

303 Miles "A"

6th, 14th, and 15th

Note: 

This was a very fast race and yet we finished several minutes behind in each race.  I knew something was not right with the birds as a result of this very  poor performance to end the season.  After the race I checked all of my feed and my Corn and Milo was completely ruined by bugs (grain moths/weavils).  Some of the Corn also had what appeared to be mold.  Needless to say I made a major mistake in never really looking at my feed and feeding the bad feed all week before the race
